Saints, it’s time to hang out with Jesus and me, Lyvita.
2:12 – Let’s pray….
3:05 – Happy New Year and Welcome back. Shana Tovah, the Hebrew word for have a good year.
3:19 – When was the last time you gave God some praise. Well let’s take a Praise Break because we are still alive, regardless of our body’s condition or the mess we are in right now. This is the perfect time to give God praise.
3:50 – The spiritual discipline of Worship and Praise should be a discipline that is engrained into you. It shouldn’t just come when times are good but when they are not and when things are running smoothly. In other words, as Psalm 34: 1 says, “I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
4:05 – When you are worshipping you are honor and adoring God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We serve a triune God. All three are one. And when we worship we are putting God first in our lives, intentionally. Worship is you showing your love, admiration, that you value for God for who He is, what He has done, and more.
4:34 – We do not worship to get things. We do not worship to prove that we are saved. We do not worship to impress others. We worship out of love, honor, respect and cherish our God.
5:03 – Take a few moments: Write this question on the top of your pad –“What do I value most about God?” Now come before God with an open and listening ear, sitting quietly for a moment. Take a few breathes. Now think about the question, “What do I value most about God? Then write your answer.
6:16 – Now think about or find the name of God that relates to what you value most about God.
7:00 – Now take some time to talk to God about what you just realized and what it means to you.
9:27 – Saints, let’s give God some praise.
9:39 – Saints, the heart of a Worshipper is to seek to know, amplify and love God in your own unique way.
CALL TO ACTION

12:48 – I’ve asked my father to join us during this time of praise for Holy Communion. So if you need time to get your cup of grape juice or wine and wafer or cracker. Pause the episode and do so now. If not, then remember it’s really not about the wine or bread represents. It’s about remembering what Jesus Christ has done for you. Let’s join my father now.
So until we meet again over the airwaves, intentionally and daily, hang out with Jesus.
